## Newtons Law of Motion

Newtons First Law
In the absence of external forces, an object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion continues in
motion with a constant velocity (that is, with a constant speed in a straight line).

## Newtons Second Law

The rate of change of momentum of a body is directly proportional to the
resultant force acting on the body and is in the same direction.

Implication
When there is resultant force acting on an object, the object will accelerate
(moving faster, moving slower or change direction).

## Newtons Third Law

Newton's third law of motion states that for every force, there is a reaction force with the same magnitude
but in the opposite direction.

acceleration = 10ms (or 9.81 ms ).

acceleration = -10ms (or -9.81 ms ).

Series Circuit

## The current flow into a resistor = the current flow

inside the resistor = the current flows out from the
The current flow into a parallel circuit is equal to the
resistor
sum of the current in each branches of the circuit.
IA = I B = IC
I = I 1 + I2
Example

## In a series circuit, the current at any points of the

circuit is the same.

## If the resistance of the 2 resistors is the same, current

will be divided equally to both of the resistor.

Series Circuit

Parallel Circuit

## The sum of the potential difference across individual

resistor in between 2 points in a series circuit is equal
to the potential difference across the two point.

## The potential difference across all the resistor in a

parallel circuit is the same.

Example

V = V1 = V2

## Potential Difference and Electromotive Force

In open circuit ( when the switch is off), the In close circuit ( when the switch is on), the
voltmeter shows the reading of the e.m.f.
voltmeter shows the reading of the potential
difference across the cell.
With the presence of internal resistance, the potential difference across the cell is always less than
the e.m.f..
b. Linear Graph method

## From the equation,

E = V + Ir
Therefore
